Mount Isa Mines Rehabilitation Material Sampling and Analysis Plan

Mine Closure

Soil Science and Rehabilitation

RGS was engaged by Glencore’s Mount Isa Mines Limited to develop and undertake a Rehabilitation Material Sampling and Analysis Program (RMSaAP) to identify and quantify potential materials that can be used to rehabilitate the large tailings storage facility (TSF) with an earthen cover system sourced from adjoining hills.

Reactive Transport Geochemical Modelling

Predictive and Numerical Modelling

RGS was engaged by WSP to construct a 2-D reactive transport hydrogeochemical model to undertake a preliminary compatibility assessment associated with the re-injection of treated water into the receiving aquifer.

Oaky Creek Geochemistry Assessments

Geochemistry and Contaminated Land

Mine Waste Management

RGS was involved in several geochemical characterisation projects of coal reject and tailings materials to support mine waste management and Closure at Glencore’s Oaky Creek Coal Mine, in Central Queensland. One project involved sampling tailings from a backfilled void using an airboat.

Hazelwood Pit Lake Modelling

Mine Closure

Predictive and Numerical Modelling

Soil Science and Rehabilitation

RGS is engaged to develop a final void/ pit lake water balance and water quality model (tool) to assess several Closure options for the Hazelwood Coal Mine in the Latrobe Valley, Victoria. As part of the Project, RGS has initiated and managed several hydro-geochemical investigations to support the modelling and Closure options.

Confidential Pit Lake Modelling
